The Rights of Migrant Sex Workers in Hong Kong

With the assistance of funding from CUHK this knowledge transfer project investigated the rights of migrant sex workers in Hong Kong. The objective of this project was to identify the rights (and gaps in rights protection) of migrant women working in the sex industry in Hong Kong, highlighting issues faced by migrant sex workers due to a lack of legislative protection and to raise awareness of those issues with policy makers, to better inform migrant sex workers of their rights under Hong Kong law, to encourage policy makers to address the gaps in the legislative framework that would offer legal protection for migrant sex workers and to promote cooperation amongst service providers, better enabling these groups to access assistance and the services of other organisations. The findings documents (including translations in Swahili and Simplified and Traditional Chinese) are now available.
